x2 large aubergines
x2 large onions chopped
x3 garlic cloves crushed
x2 cans chopped tomatoes (the 400g ones)
x2 cans Chickpeas drained (the 400g ones)
Salt and pepper
x3 tbs of olive oil
and the GOD... Frylight
Set your oven to pre heat at 250.
Cut the aubergine length ways and sprinkle with salt to sweat them out.
Leave for half an hour.
Whilst doing this, cut up your onions and garlic and fry for about 10 Min's until golden brown.
Once aubergines are ready, wash the sweat and salt off and then cut into cubes and also fry these until brown.
Bung everything together and sprinkle 3 tablespoons of olive oil over them, i haven't counted these syns as this does make a HUGE 4 people possible 6 serving but you can do if you want.
Put in the oven for 60 mins and then serve with rice yum yum yum!!!
i've been eating loads of chickpeas lately they are great, (if not a little parpy)! i've been putting them in curries and ive been making morroccan couscous with chickpeas in it using cinnamon, ground corriander, salt, pepper, turmeric and cayenne pepper for a wee kick gonna try making syn friendly hoummous with some but havent found a recipe yet, anyone got any ideas? xx
1 can drained and washed chickpeas
2 tbsp tahini
1 clove garlic (2 if you like it very garlicky)
3 tbsp plain yogurt
Juice of 2 lemons (real lemons not substitute)
Pinch of cumin
Salt to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
- Blend in food processor until smooth - Add more lemon juice if too gluggy
Serve with sprinkle of paprika and drizzle of olive oil
i have a syn free version, only because i am far to greedy to use my syns on tahini paste
1 tin chick peas drained
garlic (to taste... personally the more the better )
water (4 tblsps... u can tell if u need more)
Blend it all up untill its smooth, i use a hand blender but im sure u could use a food processor or similar....
then i serve it with carrot, pepper and cucumber batons or have it on ryvita if they are my healthy extra B hope this helps
